w/ video: Vikings show poise in second half in semifinal triumph over Bereans
alented junior class accounts for all 66 points, islanders to face No. 5 Forest Hills for regional crown

AUGUSTA — Vinalhaven girls basketball coach Sandy Nelson had two clear messages to deliver to her squad prior to its Class D South semifinal playoff game on Thursday morning, Feb. 23:

“Don’t panic, and pass the ball.”

The No. 2 Vikings made good on the advice of their veteran leader — particularly in the second half — as the islanders ran away with the high school court game late and bested No. 3 Temple Academy of Waterville (14-6) 66-49 at the Augusta Civic Center.

Tournament Report: Shead’s Jam Sessions Part of Pregame Routine

The Shead girls are working their magic again as they reached the region final for the 2nd year in a row last night.

They lost the Gold Ball game last year, but have kept the pregame preparation the same…

Southern Aroostook coach facing his alma mater in Class D North girls final

... Urquhart graduated from Shead with Natalie Smith, mother of Tigerettes freshman guard Cassidee Lawrence.

“Natalie played on a state championship team in 1999,” said Urquhart.

“It has been great all week. They have come over and congratulated me after our games and they have wished me luck,” said Urquhart.

“But they might not let me back on the island if things go our way on Saturday,” quipped Urquhart.

Urquhart doesn’t feel it will be awkward for him, saying “I haven’t put a lot of thought into it.

“It will probably be more difficult for my parents (Glynn and Toby),” said Urquhart.

Forest Hills girls reach regional final on backs of Logston, Lessard
Duo has accounted for 66 of Tigers' 75 points in previous 2 games.

... In two regional tournament games, Logston and Lessard have combined to score 66 of the Tigers’ 75 points (88 percent). In a 42-40 quarterfinal win over Pine Tree Academy, the 5-foot-8 Logston scored 25 and the 5-6 Lessard contributed 15. In Thursday’s 33-29 win over defending state champion Rangeley, Logston had 17 points, while Lessard added 9.

“Those two have just been automatic. They’re strong. They go up hard. They’ve got nice post moves. They do a little up and under, drop step baseline. Their skill sets have really improved over the four years. Now it’s starting to shine for them. They’re great kids,” Amero said.

Shead girls edge Southern Aroostook for second straight ‘D’ North title

... With Shead leading by one with eight seconds remaining, Preston did her best Malcolm Butler impression, fighting through a double-screen and stepping in front of the Warriors’ Kacy Daggett to pick off the inbounds pass and convert a breakaway layup just before time ran out.

“I almost blacked out that last minute, I can’t really remember it,” admitted Preston, whose 14 points led all scorers. “I just saw the ball in the air, grabbed it and took off.”

The Tigerettes did an outstanding job of packing in their defenders on the play and denying the Warriors’ post players any lob passes.

“Pack it in, defend the big girls and close out on the shooters,” said Preston.

Vinalhaven ends 34-year drought
The Vikings beat Forest Hills in the Class D South girls' final to win their first regional title since 1983.

AUGUSTA — It appeared all 1,200 residents of Vinalhaven made the trip to the Augusta Civic Center on Saturday to watch their girls’ basketball team play in the Class D South championship game.

They were rewarded handsomely, as the second-seeded Vikings earned their first regional title in 34 years, beating No. 5 Forest Hills, 61-45.

“It’s huge having everyone on our backs supporting us,” said Vinalhaven junior Gilleyanne Davis-Oakes, who won the Patricia Gallagher award as the tournament’s outstanding player.

***************************************************************
Vinalhaven jumps Forest Hills early, cruises to first D final since 1984

...The opening run featured back-to-back 3-pointers by Dennison. After Caitlin Logston (24 points, 15 rebounds) scored the Tigers' first points of the game with 22 seconds left in the quarter, Doughty drilled a jumper to end the period with a 14-2 lead.

"They hit shots," Forest Hills coach Anthony Amero said. "We tried to force it into other kids' hands, and they stepped up. We needed to do better at the offensive end to compete and we just couldn't buy a basket."

"Anthony's a smart coach and we saw them do that against Rangeley (in the semifinals)," Vinalhaven coach Sandy Nelson said. "We figured that was coming, and we just said, 'Just run your offense, run your offense, run your offense.' Paige and Deja can shoot from the outside. That's the difference."

***********************************************************************************
After 34-year drought, champion Vikings reign in Class D South
Davis-Oakes earns tournament's outstanding player award; Vinalhaven faces Shead for state crown

... And perhaps a new Viking reign has begun.

The No. 2 Vikings (17-4) rattled off the first 12 points of the game and never trailed against No. 5 Forest Hills of Jackman (12-9) en route to an emphatic 61-45 victory to clinch the Class D South championship on Saturday afternoon, Feb. 25 at the Augusta Civic Center.

A link to more photos from this game will appear later with this story.

Watch video below.

The win was the third regional basketball championship in school history for the Viking girls, who also won titles in 1981 and 1983.

The Viking boys also won a regional hoop crown in 1994, but the small island school has never won a state championship — a coveted gold ball — in the sport.

There was no Washington County official on the game either. What is the point?
